Happy Holidays from Rock Spring Garden Club and enjoy December’s The Gardenzette
December 7, 2023

We are happy to have you enjoy our December issue of The Gardenzette. Click here –>Gardenzette December 2023 for web pdf

We have many things to be thankful for as we end 2023.  Two weeks ago, despite the weather, Rock Spring Garden Club members held our Floral Design sale just in time to deck homes for Thanksgiving.  We cannot thank enough all the club members who helped us in multiple capacities, and our customers who came out in the rain and bought a design or two.  The funds raised go directly to our community outreach programs that include youth garden therapy programs, junior gardeners, 4-H summer camp scholarships and senior outreach.

Our December meeting is a members-only Holiday tea.  And you could join us next year if you consider becoming a member of Rock Spring Garden Club.  We are an active community organization that aligns with National Garden Clubs Inc. and our club is an active part of National Capital Area Garden Clubs, Inc. District III AND Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. Piedmont District.  Membership affords us access to four NGC Schools with certification, symposiums, garden conferences, tours, field trips, flower shows, and continuous educational opportunities that focus on horticulture, landscape, environmental concerns and floral design.  If you have a sincere interest in any of these topics, Rock Spring Garden Club might be the organization for you.  Feel free to explore our website and contact us via email [email protected]

On behalf of all our members, we wish you happy holidays and best wishes for 2024!
